Hi, I'm having a problem with a Gateway MX6453 laptop. When running any kind of application the screen gets light and dim and then light again constantly as long as I run the application. Also when I turn off or restart the computer, Windows reboots with the original factory settings. Any wallpaper or anything else I change reverts back. I've tried checking the disc for errors, but when I restart it just loads XP again with factory settings. Could this be virus?

hi,

if you are still having issues and suspect that it is malware related I would start with our malware forum and see if they can make sure you don't have any malware installed.

post hjt log in malware forum.

It might be helpful to know that Best Buys software is still on it?
